Newcastle United are in talks to offer Sean Longstaff and brother Matty new contracts at St James’ Park, according to The Times.

Here’s how these Newcastle fans reacted to The Times’ suggestion of new contracts for the Longstaff duo…

The Red Devils were reticent to matching United’s alleged asking price, and the Toon board now intend to reward the elder of the Longstaff brothers with another improved contract to better reflect his worth to the club.

Sean Longstaff was the focus of grand speculation over a move to Manchester United this summer, but Newcastle chiefs held firm in their reluctance to sell, having slapped a staggering £50million asking price on the North Shields-born prospect.

Now, though, he could be set to secure improved terms that would move him closer to Jonjo Shelvey and club-record signing Joelinton, with The Times suggesting Newcastle may present a contract worth as much as £80,000-a-week to the midfielder who has played just ten top-flight games in his career.

Matty Longstaff is also in consideration for a new deal at St James’ Park, as the 19-year-old defensive midfielder is out of contract next summer, but performed well in his outings with the senior side during pre-season.

At present, the 21-year-old is believed to be earning around £25,000-a-week, after signing an improved deal following his promotion into the senior squad last December under Rafa Benitez.
